Whether you’re looking to dress up or dress down your khakis, a blue shirt is a definite go-to. This option is incredibly versatile – no matter what shade of blue you choose, this color shirt goes perfectly with khaki pants.

Pair your khaki chino pants with a light blue button-down shirt, brown belt, and brown shoes for a more “corporate” look that you can wear all day long. To keep it casual, pair your khakis with a navy blue polo shirt or tee, white sneakers, and a webbed belt. Khakis are a great neutral base, so don’t be afraid to mix it up a little bit with patterns. You can’t go wrong with a Gingham or checked pattern in the spring. In winter, look for heavier fabrics that have a texture like wool or dobby. 

Our Men’s Hamilton Chamois Shirt in “Faded Indigo” represents the quintessential American standard, offering unparalleled thickness, heat retention, and robustness.

Khakis with a Grey Shirt

Our Men’s Axe Thermal in “Parchment” is the perfect complement to your pair of khakis. In a classic crewneck style, this thermal will keep you feeling warm and stylish wherever you go. 

Khakis with a Green Shirt

Olive green is a great compliment to a classic pair of khakis. It’s a relatively neutral color that works great with both lifestyle outfits for heading to the office or the brewery, or outdoor ensembles like sitting around a campfire or hiking. Being an earthy tone, olive green can help bring a grounded sense of style to your next outfit. Don’t be afraid to opt for different shades of green, as they can all be perfect complements to khakis. 

For a more rugged look, pair your green shirt with a pair of our outdoor pants that are designed to withstand all the demands of your workday, outdoor adventure, or night out. 

Pair your khakis and green shirt with brown or gray footwear and a brown or gray belt. Feel free to mix fabrics, and look for a shirt with a bit more texture like a dobby or cotton slub to give your fit more visual interest.

Khakis with a Black Shirt

Nothing polishes up a look more than the classic color combination of black and khaki. Enrich your outfit by combining your khakis with a sleek black dress shirt button-up, complemented by a matching black belt and black shoes. This choice strikes the perfect balance between sophistication and understated charm. If you're aiming for a more relaxed vibe while maintaining an edge, opt for the casual allure of black short-sleeve polos or tees paired with your trusty khakis. This versatile pairing not only amplifies your wardrobe options but also showcases the inherent swagger that accompanies the Mountain Khakis spirit.

Black shirts can be dressed up or down depending on if you choose to pair it with regular khaki pants or dressier chinos. The choice of khakis vs chinos ultimately comes down to the type of occasion and your preferences, but ultimately, you can’t go wrong either way. 

Pair your khakis with our Men’s Noda Flannel Shirt in Black for a polished look that is suitable for any occasion. 

Khakis with a Pink Shirt

Pink is an underrated yet versatile color that can beautifully complement a classic pair of khakis. Whether you're aiming for a refined office look or a laid-back weekend ensemble, pairing khakis with a pink shirt can add a touch of sophistication and playfulness to your outfit.

At Mountain Khakis, we offer a variety of men’s pants that complement your pink shirt and elevate your outfit–without compromising comfort. 

Like olive green, pink comes in various shades, from subtle pastels to vibrant hues, offering endless possibilities to customize your style. Experimenting with different shades of pink allows you to create looks that suit your personality and the occasion perfectly.

When styling khakis with a pink shirt, consider incorporating complementary accessories to enhance the overall aesthetic. Brown or navy footwear, along with a coordinating belt, can anchor the look while adding depth and balance to your outfit.
